Screenshot Editing With Photoshop THE RIGHT WAY

Step 1 - Press f7 to turn off your HUD, then f12 to take your background screenshot.
36

Step 2 - Afterwards press f7 again to get the text back and type /blindfold and once again screenshot using f12 to get the text of the RP you want in the screenshot.
38

Step 3 - Open both images in Photoshop, make sure you double click the background images layer to make it a proper layer.
37

Step 4 - Change the background images canvas size to 800x600px(my preference) and move the images position to however you wish.
39

Step 5 - Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to choose what text from the /blindfold image that you want on the screenshot, then press ctrl+c afterwards go back to the background image and pres ctrl+v.

Step 6 - Use the Magic Eraser Tool to remove the black background. Make sure you already erased and extra irrelevant test like advertisement, /b's, basically anything OOC or not relevant to the main RP you're trying to show.

Step 7 - Right click the text layer and go to Blending Options. Add a stroke of 1 to the text. Anything other then 1 looks trashy, never think otherwise.

Step 8 - Position the text in the top left or bottom right, then hold shift and tap the up/down arrow key once and then hit the right arrow key.

Bonus - If you wish to get a grimier look for the screenshot save it as a JPG quality 4-5. If not and you want the entire image to just be high quality save it as a PNG.

Made this guide on another server but I thought it could be useful here, whenever the server is up if it doesn't work the same way I'll edit the guide.
